Junior Lifeguard Holiday Program


A 3 day program designed to teach young swimmers age 10-15 years water rescue skills in a safe and social setting.

Has your child ever thought about seeing if they have what it takes to be a lifeguard? Or would like the opportunity to learn some crucial water safety skills? Well these school holidays, we're running an extensive Junior Lifeguard Training Program for kids and teenagers aged between 10-12 or 13-15 years.

​This program is for strong swimmers looking to further develop their skills. We recommend 10-12 year old’s be able to swim a minimum of 25m consistently, and 13-15 year old’s be able to swim 50m consistently to get the most out of their experience. They need to be able to scull water in deep water for a minimum of 1 minute. If they are in the Swim ARCademy program, those in Excel or higher would get the most enjoyment out of this activity.

So, what you will learn?

  • Chain of survival 
  • How to safely perform a water rescue 
  • Immobilise a suspected spinal injury in the water
  • Practice water safety skills
  • Keeping safe in an aquatic emergency 
  • Use a PFD (personal floatation device) in deep water
  • Defensive position
  • Search and rescue.
  • Water safety education whilst in a safe and social setting

On the final day (Thursday 7 October), we'll put your skills to the test against the group members by competing in a fun mini lifeguard challenge.

Need to know

Program runs for 3 days from Tuesday 5 October (5, 6, 7 October) for just $40 ( inclusive of pool entry, instruction and 1 spectator).

It's run by qualified ARC Swimming Instructors and Lifeguards that hold the relevant skills and certifications to teach your kids the correct water safety skills, in a safe and social setting. 

Session times 

13 - 15 years 8:30 to 10:30am 
10 - 12 years 11am to 1pm

If your child is over 12 years old, you can leave the facility during the program. If they 11 years old or younger you will need to remain available within the Aquatic zone nearby to your child's location.
